Weds 3rd August So this has been a bit of a nightmare with this trip, I got cellulitis about 10 days before I was due to fly. Luckily it wasn’t as bad as last time so I was fairly fit enough to go, I didn’t want to cancel another trip this year. Because of the late booking of this trip I couldn’t get a direct flying out so I had to do the Atlanta route. I got to the airport and I had already checked in online for my flight to Atlanta with Virgin Atlantic. I had to get my boarding pass printed for the Atlanta to Vegas part of the journey. The guy behind the desk printed off both my boarding passes. As I walked away from the desk I looked at my boarding pass for the flight to Atlanta and I see my seat number is not what I booked. I was about to return to the desk when I noticed I had been bumped up to Premium Economy. So that’s a good start. The flight to Atlanta was good especially now being in Premium, we arrived early into Atlanta and it was a good job as immigration was very busy. The queue for returning ESTA was backed up so I ended up being put in the general queue. About halfway through the queue and they were picking out returning ESTA passengers and sending to the machines. So that helped and I got through a bit quicker. I picked up my luggage and rechecked it and went through security and had a little bit of time before my next flight. I found the Blue Moon bar and had a couple of drinks in there. Although $10 for pint I made sure I enjoyed it. Time for my flight to Vegas and its pretty much on time leaving, the seat was not that good especially as it was advertised as a preferred seat and I had paid a little extra, so cheers for that Delta. The pilot tells us that there’s some bad weather in the Vegas area so we were going to fly out towards California and approach Vegas from that way which will put about 15 minutes onto the flight. Anyway it then turned out the weather had cleared so we could go straight into Vegas and would now be 15 minutes early. After getting off the plane I collected my luggage and went to get a cab, there was virtually no queue so I didn’t have to wait. We set off towards Downtown to The D. I arrived at The D and check in was quick and easy. I got to my room which was just a basic but they are nice rooms and I stopped here in April and enjoyed it. I unpacked and freshened up and went off to get something to eat. The only bad thing was my leg had swelled quite a bit during my journey. It wasn’t painful though so I hit Mcdonalds for a quick bite to eat and then headed over to Golden Gate which is a fave of mine. One of the bar staff recognised me as I’m a bit of a regular here, I had a couple of beers before moving onto the Fremont for a pint. By now the tiredness was kicking in and my leg was hurting a little by now. I finished the night in The D before heading for bed for a much needed rest.
